Sucker for Seersucker

I may be a little obsessed with seersucker.  That slightly puckered and flat stripe makes my heart sing!  In fact, I have (probably from 2004 or 2005?) a seersucker skirt suit from Isaac Mizrahi for Target that I STILL love (and fit in, thank God).  Now the season is upon us for men to whip out their seersucker pants, shorts and suits (I bet even Duchess Kate has one for little Prince George), we ladies can join the party with so many varied pieces in this fabulous fabric.  Which one is your favorite??

Adore the faux two piece dress.
Banana Republic on sale $108.00
Sailor buttons ON TOP of seersucker.  Perfect!
Loft $49.50
Classic pencil skirt.  A must have.
JCrew Factory $54.50
The blazer completes the look.
Talbots $179.00
Come ON- aren't you just obsessed now, too??

Tassel Me Happy

It's been a slow spring start in Boston, but Marathon Monday really kicked good weather in gear for us! While the mornings are still cool, the days are finally warming up and my toes (and white pale legs!) can begin to remember what it's like to see daylight again.  I did a huge purge of summer shoes over the winter...these are ripped, those are uncomfortable, these give me get the idea.  And for a woman in her late 30s, I own way too many flip flops.  Seriously, I can't wear those to work!  So, I've been on a bit of a shoe shopping extravaganza.  (Did I mention I don't really love shoe shopping- I have a wide foot and my size can vary a great deal.) 

Here's my latest obsession: tassels on my shoes!  Fun fringe that makes it feel playful and yet at the same time classic.  Really excited about wearing a few of these beauties this season.

I've been on a JCrew kick lately.
